WHAT'S YOUR SALARY?

Parade Magazine has released their annual US salary survey. Yes, it’s in US dollars and based on US markets but it’s still quite interesting for us Canadian folks.

There are a lot of fascinating jobs and salaries listed. I picked the guy above for my post not because of how much he makes but for the fact that you can actually have a job being a competitive eater. Sure, he probably doesn’t own a brownstone on the Lower East Side, but think of it this way, he gets paid $25K a year to eat, something we pay to do.

I don’t feel superior to the people who get paid less than I do, nor do I resent the people who make more than I do. Actually, there was this one guy in the list that made over $200K as a car sales manager. When I read that, there might have been a molecule of resentment that developed in me. That’s a pretty big salary for someone who sells cars. Of course, I know nothing of what he does, so this is me pretty much making a snap judgment. Terrible me!
